Heidi  Hetzer - Living Without Brakes


An old lady, a dusty vintage car and a dream come true

"Age doesn't protect you from life" is Heidi Hetzer's motto when in 2014 she sets off alone in a 1930 model Hudson on a journey round the world. She is already swimming against the current when in the 1950's she trains as a car mechanic in her father's auto business. In her early thirties she takes over the family company and makes it into the largest car dealership in Berlin, starts a family – and regularly takes part in car rallies.

For the first time Heidi Hetzer tells us of her exciting life and the big adventure of her two-and-a-half-year journey through forty countries, of a tour de force packed with mishaps and obstacles, highs and lows, but also with fascinating experiences and encounters with helpful people.

Inspiring, vibrant, encouraging!

"This 81-year-old Berliner will captivate her fans with her new book of her wonderful world."
